that president obama is getting what we talked about yesterday, a long term goal was to shrink down our defense and expand the welfare state. here's my question. what do you think the american people care about most? the military or the welfare state? >> i think there's competing priorities, and that american people elect leaders to represent them and this isn't necessarily what america would want. of course, it's not easy to make cuts in any regard, and in fact, they did some military cuts to pension growth in the future, just in december, two months later, the congress restored the cuts. it's very difficult to do any sort of cutting. i do think that jay of national review wrote a great piece today about president obama's goal to shrink the military overall. and that he wanted a republican secretary of defense to oversee that draw down as cover for his upcoming budget, which does definitely expand not just the welfare state, but spending on lots of different things, domestic programs. the priority, i'm always for more defense. i understand there could be cuts here and there, waste fraud, and s

the threat or use of force. and that none of their weapons will ever be used against ukraine except in self-defense or otherwise in accordance with the charter of the united nations. that clearly hasn't happened now, even though putin claims he's potential acting to protect the russian populace. >> no, it hasn't, but then again, you know, seen from not just russia, but many ukrainance as well, what happened was not like what happened in egypt with the overthrow of commune im. yanukovych was a repulsive ruler in many ways, but he wasn't elected. a large part of the ukrainian parliament is being chased out of kiev, you know, the representatives of the east and south, the parties which supported yanukovych. so it is highly questionable whether this government in kiev does have any degree of democratic legitimately. that's why, quite rightly, the west has gotten a promise of new elections in may, but of course the question is how one can hold free and fair elections with nationalist militia in control of with you pant of the country and russian soldiers in control of another. >> finally, the west is cl

that the russians are doing. the russias defense minister announced they're seeking basing privileges around the world in nicaragua and venezuela. so they want to have a blue water navy again, at the same time the russian defense minister said we're going to our old military bases in the former soviet union states and going to modernize those, and then today the russian military mobilizing on the ukrainian border. they're not going to invade but they're saying, take us seriously again. >> we have given them there are consequences, referring to you crepe. but in the case of cuba, when would be get alarmed, two ships, three ships, building weapons. >> the solution is not just to make a speech and say there will be consequences. there should be a much more comprehensive policy. for example, in cuba, the castros are going to die and whatever is first into cuba is going to have an enormous opportunity. we better make sure we're the first person into cuba, not the russians and the chinese. >> russia has the ties. >> but objects the astros are gone cube -- the castros are gone, it's an opportunity.

out this kind of spending, defense spending, education spending, highway spending throughout our whole government. let me draw your attention to this chart, colleagues. this is what director elmendorf told us two weeks ago, last week in his testimony before the budget committee on the budget of the united states of america. he told us that the interest we paid this day, this past year was $230 billion, not -- the savings from reducing veterans' retirement over ten years was $6 billion. the federal highway bill for one year is approximately $40 billion. the amount of money we spend on education is around $100 billion, all these programs that we spend it on. the amount of money we spend on the defense department is about 500. so this year, last year, we spent about $230 billion on interest. we don't -- when we borrow money, we go into debt, we borrow the money. people loan us the money. we give them treasury bills, with interest. look at this chart. it's so stunning. so this year is 2013, it's $230 billion. look at the increase director elmendorf told us we can expect over the next ten y

to be active participation on both sides of an issue, of a person charged with a crime. on defense or litigation over a law itself. so chairman goodlatte from here in virginia had -- just across the river in virginia had called a hearing in judiciary this week. we had another about the constitutionality or lack thereof of actions by this administration, and it's very alarming, professor johnson totally with whom i disagreed on any policy issues, has a wonderful grasp of the constitution, and he recognizes the dangers when administration decides to pick and choose which laws will be enforced and goes further and issues executive orders not like prior administrations that simply explain on most occasions or illuminate some law as to how they think it's to be interpreted, but to actually make law in executive orders. that's just unconscionable for somebody that took an oath to defend the constitution. . so i can't recall times aye agreed with the "l.a. times" before, but they had an editorial that indicates even the "l.a. times" understands the danger of what's going on right now in t
